Goal No. 1: Amass 70 tackles, have missed tackle rate of 9.0 percent
In Joseph’s 2017 campaign, he amassed 79 tackles (58 solo) for the Raiders. That was during the season where he had his career-high in games played/started, which was 15 for both. Last season, again, though, his foot injury limited him, but his 49 tackles through nine games was somewhat notable.
Joseph made four tackles for loss as well in that nine-game span, which was a career-best. Albeit for the Browns this upcoming season, it’d be meaningful for Joseph to be more efficient in terms of stops. He had a missed tackle rate of 14.0 percent, and had eight missed tackles overall in 2019.
In 2020 for the Cleveland Browns, it’d be a plus if that rate were to be trimmed down feasibly to 9.0 percent or so. In comparison, Joseph had four missed tackles in 13 games during the 2018 season, and only a 7.7 percent missed tackle rate.
For Cleveland this upcoming season, it’d be realistic for a target to be 9.0 percent for that metric. One would like Joseph to see finish ball carriers and fill well in a strong safety role.
Considering he’s capable of that, having 70 tackles, and meaningful ones at that, and a 9.0 percent missed tackle rate is seemingly attainable and would indicate he’s making a consistent impact.
